The full Moon

Tuesday, October 11, 2011

It was about 5:30 this morning when I awoke in our hotel room at Seaside. A strange white light lay across our bed. I had to get out of bed to investigate. The clouds had parted, and a beautiful silver moon hung shining over the waves. So unexpected in October!

    Here, too. I got up during the night and the light was coming in my breakfast nook window.
Did you see the moon as it just comes up? Its aa big orange ball, it looks so close you should be able to touch it.

Murphy's Law - Tech Version

Tuesday, October 11, 2011

* All great discoveries are made by mistake.

* Tell a man there are 300 billion stars in the universe and he'll believe you. Tell him a bench has wet paint on it and he'll have to touch to be sure.

* Nothing ever gets built on schedule or within budget.

* All's well that ends.

* A meeting is an event at which the minutes are kept and the hours are lost.

* A computer makes as many mistakes in two seconds as 20 men working 20 years make.

* Nothing motivates a man more than to see his boss putting in an honest day's work.

* After all is said and done, a heck of a lot more is said than done.

“The Porcelain Unicorn”

Wednesday, October 05, 2011

This summer, Philips and the renowned director/producer, Ridley Scott, launched a global filmmaker competition dubbed the: “Tell It Your Way” Film Making Contest.
The entrants were given total freedom of expression and could take up any theme they wanted. But there were two rules in the contest to qualify for the prize that were strictly enforced:
1) Only six lines of dialogue was allowed in the film. Thus challenging the film maker to show, rather than to tell the story. This insured that the film submissions would portray a story graphically, keeping the elements in the story visual.

2) The other rule concerned brevity and challenged the film maker with a time constraint for conveying the story. Any film submitted in the contest had to be no longer than a total of three minutes.
Finally after the judging ended, this was the prize-winning entry in the, "Tell It Your Way" contest. It is entitled, “The Porcelain Unicorn.”

Maybe this is why they don't teach music in high school any more.

Monday, October 03, 2011

Following are actual answers from students on music tests...

- The principal singer of nineteenth century opera was called pre-Madonna.

- Gregorian chant has no music, just singers singing the same lines.

- Sherbet composed the Unfinished Symphony.

- All female parts were sung by castrati. We don't know exactly what they sounded like because there are no known descendants.

- Young scholars have expressed their rapture for the Bronze Lullaby, the Taco Bell Cannon, Beethoven's Erotica, Tchaikovsky Cracknutter Suite, and Gershwin's Rap City in Blue.

- Music sung by two people at the same time is called a duel; if they sing without music it is called Acapulco.

- A virtuoso is a musician with real high morals.

- Contralto is a low sort of music that only ladies sing.

- Probably the most marvelous fugue was the one between the Hatfields and the McCoys.

- I know what a sextet is but I'd rather not say.

- Johann Sebastian Bach wrote a great many musical compositions and had a large number of children. In between he practiced on an old spinster which he kept up in his attic.

- Rock Monanoff was a famous post-romantic composer of piano concerti.
